The Airy stress function that would give this stress state is Φ Then using sin The stresses can be obtained from the Airy Stress Function (they can also be obtained by using the stress transformation equations): Example 2: Use the Airy stress function to guess at a solution for a hole in a plate problem. Using the Airy stress function for a plate with no hole, we guess the solution for the plate with a hole to be of the form: Inserting the Airy stress function into the biharmonic equation in polar coordinates we obtain: which can be rewritten as The solutions are: The stresses are To find the constants we use the boundary conditions: ∞. In addition, they must assume and become zero because the stresses must be finite as the forms for the plate with no hole giving us the expressions for and At r=a, 0 giving us the relations: Finally, the stresses are: ...
